Cincy quarterback Zach Collaros had a fine time, throwing for 263 and running for 52 while scoring four total touchdowns. Running back Isaiah Pead averaged 6.7 yards per carry on his way to a 167-yard evening
The only thing N.C. State had going for it: two T.J. Graham touchdown catches that totaled 136 yards. Take away those two catches -- one a catch-and-run and the other a blown coverage -- and the Wolfpack would've gained only 186 yards on the evening, 318 fewer than the 504 Cincinnati piled up. So, yeah, it was even worse than it looks.
